Dr. Alexander Chuprov
Beautiful eyes to everyone!

Dr. Chuprov proudly told us about Svyatoslav Nikolaevich Fyodorov, the Russian eye surgeon, who developed radial keratotomy in 1974. It was the first surgical procedure to correct myopia (nearsightedness). Fyodorov is widely considered to be the pioneer of refractive surgery.
